IM Pei 

Chinese-American architect IM Pei turned 100 this week. To celebrate, Dezeen selected 10 of his most iconic buildings from a career that spans seven decades.

His architecture is identifiable through its strict geometries – combinations of circles, squares and triangles that manifest in both two and three dimensions in plan, section and elevation. The firm’s oeuvre ranges from a curving brick chapel to soaring glass-sheathed skyscrapers, and includes museums, libraries and civic centres in locations across the globe.

Identified from the top:

  • Le Grand Louvre, Paris, France, 1989 
  • Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong, China, 1990 
  • Suzhou Museum, Suzhou, China, 2006 
  • Museum of Islamic Art, Doha, Qatar, 2008 
  • Dallas City Hall, Dallas, USA, 1978 
  • Luce Memorial Chapel, Taichung, Taiwan, 1963 
  • Miho Museum, Kyoto, Japan, 1997 
  • Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, USA, 1995 
  • Kennedy Library, Boston, USA, 1979 
  • National Gallery of Art East Building, Washington DC, USA, 1978

“i miss that immersive experience, now people only listen to a few seconds of song on their iPods and they don’t really invest in the whole experience. it’s all about the single, and the hype. it’s so much that gets between the music and the art and the fans. i felt like, i don’t want anybody to get the message, when my record is coming out. i just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”

It was a big step, to go from not talking to people to stepping on to a stage. That’s when I felt the most comfortable, because I could do anything I wanted to and say anything I wanted to, even if people didn’t laugh.

“the lyric that always sticks out to me is ‘what do you do when the chapter ends? do you close the book and never read it again?’ you kind of need to hear a sentiment like that sometimes, when you are going through a hard time, to be like ‘yeah, you know. I’ve got two options. I can either close the book and feel sorry for myself or I can keep going.’“
